It's Not Your Father's Music Publishing Business Anymore!

How Publishing is Changing in a New Media/New Technology Music Marketplace

What is the significance of major publishers carving out rights that are traditionally the province of the PROs? What do artists, their lawyers, and managers expect from publishers in 2013, and how does that differ from 5, 10, or 15 years ago?

Dan Coleman (Moderator) - Modern Works Music Publishing (Managing Partner)

Matt DeFilippis - ASCAP (VP, New Media & Technology)

Bob Donnelly (Panel Host) - Lommen Abdo King Cole Stageberg P.A.

The GRAMMY Foundation, in concert with some of the nation’s most prominent entertainment attorneys, established the Entertainment Law Initiative (ELI) in 1998 to promote discussion and debate about compelling legal issues facing the music industry today. The initiative also endeavors to promote future careers in entertainment law by seeking out the nation’s top law students and giving them invaluable networking and educational opportunities.

We look forward to having you join us for this distinguished event.
